What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft involves the unauthorized use of someone else's personal information for fraud. In Illinois, this crime encompasses various activities, such as unlawfully obtaining social security numbers, credit card information, or other personal identifiers. Perpetrators may use this information to commit financial fraud, access medical services, or engage in various criminal activities, leaving the victim to deal with the aftermath.

What are the Penalties for Identity Theft in Illinois?

Illinois takes identity theft seriously, imposing severe penalties for those convicted. The consequences can range from fines to imprisonment, depending on the severity of the offense and the value of the property or services obtained through the stolen identity. Convictions may damage your personal and professional life, affecting employment opportunities, housing options, and more.

Our attorneys at The Toney Law Firm, LLC, recognize the gravity of these charges and are well-versed in Illinois identity theft laws. We meticulously examine the evidence against you, identifying weaknesses in the prosecution's case and exploring legal avenues to mitigate the potential consequences. Our objective is to secure the best possible outcome for our clients, whether through negotiation, plea bargaining, or aggressive courtroom representation.

Defenses Against Identity Theft Charges

Mounting a strong defense against identity theft charges requires a thorough understanding of the law and navigating complex legal proceedings. The Toney Law Firm, LLC, has a proven track record of successfully defending clients facing identity theft allegations. Our strategic defenses include:

  • Insufficient Evidence: We scrutinize the evidence presented by the prosecution, challenging its reliability and relevance. If the evidence is insufficient or obtained unlawfully, we work tirelessly to have it excluded from the case.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, individuals may be wrongfully accused due to mistaken identity. Our attorneys investigate the charges' circumstances to establish a solid defense, demonstrating that you are not the perpetrator.
  • Lack of Intent: Identity theft charges often hinge on proving the defendant's intent to commit fraud. We explore and present evidence challenging the prosecution's ability to establish criminal intent, raising doubts about your culpability.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If law enforcement violated your constitutional rights during the investigation, we pursue the exclusion of unlawfully obtained evidence, weakening the prosecution's case.

At The Toney Law Firm, LLC, we leave no stone unturned in crafting a robust defense strategy tailored to the specifics of your case. Our attorneys leverage their extensive experience and legal acumen to protect your rights and fight for a favorable resolution.
